Resistance and Hope: Essays by Disabled People

Posted Feb 18, 2019

Resistance and Hope: Essays by Disabled People is a new publication edited by Alice Wong that will be of great interest to the PNCA community. Currently, we do not have a platform that supports the addition of ebooks, but the publisher has generously provided information on how to access this important title on Kindle or for free. Here is a link to more information about this book.
